Description Nathan 2007-10-30 16:32:17 UTC
While emerging net-tools it complained that it could not find  I double checked to ensure that I had installed expat and noticed that it did not create a symlink.
Once this symlink was created net-tools compiled fine.  So the bug is either a symlink not being created or net-tools not calling on the right shared lib.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install new system
2. run emerge --update world
3. watch it complain on net-tools build

Actual Results:  
This was a new box I was setting up and it didn't complain on the other machine I have running.  However I haven't swapped the hard drives to determine if it's having issues with net-tools

making a symlink from /usr/lib/libexpat.<version> to fixed the problem and net-tools compiled fine.
